The NAACP Oral History Project Exhibit to continue, online

The NAACP Oral History Project Exhibit, a collaboration of the Housatonic Heritage Oral History Center at Berkshire Community College, the NAACP – Berkshire Branch, and the Berkshire Museum, opened on Feb. 1, 2019 and closed on May 5.

Now, thanks to Sam Redman, professor of oral history at the University of Massachusetts, two graduate students in the Public History program there will create a web presence for that exhibit.  In other words, though the exhibit closed months ago, it continues and will be available for you to see right here, soon.  We will keep you posted!

Here we are brainstorming the next steps at the Starving Artist Cafe in Lee.  Dennis Powell, NAACP president, Len Kates, NAACP partner in the Oral History Project, and graduate students Rachel Panasci and Helen Kyriakoudes.  Craig Langlois, the person whose group created the exhibit at the Museum, is an important part of this team, too.  (I am invisible, though my seat and notebook with an sd card and flash drive attached give me away.)
